Sam Doores to celebrate the release of his eponymous debut LP at the Hi Ho Lounge, 3/13

Acclaimed singer/songwriter Sam Doores will celebrate the release of Sam Doores on Friday March 13, 2020 at the Hi Ho Lounge. The album is available in all formats from New West Records.

Doores and his band will be joined by special guests including the innovative traditional jazz band Tuba Skinny and Alynda Segarra the leader of Hurray For the Riff Raff. Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes will close the night with a set with his band. Doores’ set will begin at 10:30 PM and Barnes will follow at 11:30 PM. The Mashed Potato Records Review will open the evening at 9 PM.

Sam Doores has built up a strong reputation as one of the most significant up and coming songwriters hailing from New Orleans. He was a founding member of the Hurray for the Riff Raff and has also performed with two other seminal New Orleans new folk revival bands, the Tumbleweeds and the Deslondes.

His latest and most personal record was released on New West Records. Here’s what OffBeat magazine had to say about the album. “Recorded over several years in Berlin with copasetic producer and project instigator Anders ‘Ormen’ Christopherson as well as an international cast of co-conspirators, the album uses strings, vintage organs, marimbas, vibraphones and even an autoharp to create a moody, psychedelic vibe. Doores has fashioned an intimate, personal album that uses the studio as an instrument.”

“Wish You Well,” a jaunty kiss off to an ex includes the above-mentioned line, and features members of the inventive local trad jazz combo Tuba Skinny. They also appear on the passionate love song “Must Be Somethin’.” On the 1950s girl group-inspired “Other Side of Town,” Doores trades lines with his old bandmate Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff.”

The Mashed Potato Records Review features numerous musicians in Doores’ orbit playing one song or two including Esther Rose, Okay Crawdad, Sabine McCalla, Chris Acker, Gina Leslie, Matt Bell & Joy Patterson, Casey Jane, Sam Gelband, Christopher Luis Romaguerra, and Jenny & Fred Doores.
